In my opinion Hanks is overrated! I liked him in Saving Private Ryan
and Cast Away
, but overall I'm just not crazy about the guy! Not to mention an actor with some serious grit would be needed for such a role, and LaBeouf just doesn't cut it. When I think of gritty modern actors I think of Clive Owen, Daniel Craig, Viggo Mortensen, but not Tom Hanks!
To be honest the Hanks comparison has been made by others and I just repeated it, in my opinion LaBeouf is more the second coming of John Cusack!
You really haven't seen Blade Runner
yet? You do owe it to yourself to see one of Ford's best roles!
